Imposter Syndrome and Philosophy: Thinking with Gilles Deleuze and Mark Fisher

Acid Horizon

CONTENT WARNING: MENTAL HEALTH DISCUSSION In this episode, Craig, Will, Matt, and Adam invite friend of the show Rose( @8leggedloser) to discuss the notion of 'impostor syndrome'. Using texts such as Mark Fisher's "Good for Nothing" and Deleuze's "Plato and the Simulacrum" from his Logic of Sense, we consider what it means to feel a failure of identification in relation to how one is recognised in the order of things, what it means to internalise social forces that attempt to confine you within identity categories, and what forces and mechanisms there are that constantly call the self into question and demand it account for its authenticity (and often, do so for the sake of asserting power, and of enforcing essentialisms of race, gender, and class). Thinkers in this discussion include Mark Fisher, Deleuze, Wittgenstein, Plato, Freud, Stirner, Nietzsche, Marx, Hegel, and more!Contribute to Acid Horizon: www.patreon.com/acidhorizonpodcastSubscribe to us on Apple Podcasts: podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/acid…on/id1512615438Happy Hour at Hippel's (Adam’s blog): https://happyhourathippels.wordpress.comHyperstition Arrays (Matt’s Blog): https://hyperstitionarrays.comRevolting Bodies (Will's Blog): https://revoltingbodies.comSplit Infinities (Craig’s Substack): https://splitinfinities.substack.com/Music: https://sereptie.bandcamp.com/Merch Store: http://www.crit-drip.com
